1] It is difficult to distinguish from fibroadenomas, while malignant cystosarcoma phyllodes
can grow in size quickly and metastasize early.
Primary osteosarcoma of the breast is a rare and aggressive malignancy that should be differentiated from two other similar tumors: metaplastic carcinoma and cystosarcoma phyllodes
But 1 case was misdiagnosed as malignancy and turned out to be benign cystosarcoma phyllodes
, a benign lesion.
The term cystosarcoma phyllodes
was first introduced by Muller in 1838.

El termino original de Cystosarcoma Phyllodes
fue acunado por Johannes Muller en 1838 para denominar un tumor que macroscopicamente tenia la apariencia de la carne de pescado (2).
Virginal hypertrophy, giant fibroadenoma, and cystosarcoma phyllodes
are the important differential diagnoses to be considered when one encounters a large breast mass.
, also called phyllodes tumor, can likewise cause a rapidly growing large mass in adolescents that also warrants removal.
In our study, a single case of malignant cystosarcoma phyllodes
was included; the aspirate revealed many malignant spindle cells.
is a rare breast tumor with variable malignant potential.
Phyllodes tumors, also known as cystosarcoma phyllodes
, are histologically similar to fibroadenomas but show more stromal proliferation.
A distinct fibroepithelial neoplasm characterised by leaf-like arrangement of spindle shaped stromal cell with elongated epithelial component in breast was first named as Cystosarcoma Phyllodes
by Johannes Muller in 1838.
